This special edition takes its origin from a 2014 conference in which SERCIA (Société pour l’Enseignement et la Recherche du Cinéma Anglophone) brought to the forefront a specific dimension of the film-going experience often neglected or underdeveloped in film studies and analyses: the sonic dimension. Under the title “Music and Movies: National and Transnational Perspectives” the three-day conference was co-hosted by the Department of American Studies at Radboud University in Nijmegen. The city of Nijmegen is not only the oldest town in the Netherlands but film experts and buffs also recognize a number of iconic historical locations from Richard Attenborough’s epic war film A Bridge Too Far (1977) – a fitting reference since Nijmegen celebrated its 70th anniversary of the Allied liberation at the time of our conference. Our conference in Nijmegen brought together 57 international scholars from diverse disciplines offering a discursive platform for the collaboration between film studies, cultural studies, American studies, musicology, ethnomusicology, performance culture, sound design, and media studies.
